Who is Alpha Academy?

Alpha Academy is a Christian-based mentoring program designed to give students a break from their regular life and guide them toward a better path. Alpha Academy is a program of the nonprofit Son Care Foundation

Alpha Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.

How Does Alpha Academy Help?

We are a community where men can work, volunteer, go on adventures together, and live in a place they can focus on becoming more effective people.

For the residential program we provide Alpha students with a 4 bedroom home to live in for the 6 months that they spend here.

Students in the non-residential program have weekly mentoring sessions with an assigned mentor.

Alpha Academy helps students stick to their plans by keeping them accountable and on track. Students find that they are more successful with someone holding them accountable.

Who Is This For?

Alpha Academy is for any young man ages 18-25 who is not happy with how life is going or just needs help figuring out where they want their life to go.

Alpha is ideal for:

  • A high school senior who is not ready to jump right into college, but is looking for an alternative that will help him grow.

  • Someone who feels like they are "spinning their wheels" and do not know how to finally move forward in life.

  • A man who messed up at school or with his family and needs a place to pick up the pieces.

  • Someone who wants to determine what they are really good at and passionate about before committing to a major or career.

  • Someone in college who isn't sure if they are happy with the path they have chosen. 

Our Goals

  1. That you are able to make a plan and have the self-discipline to follow it. We call this plan a "Life Map."
     

  2. That you can create and maintain healthy relationships in the areas of family, friends, romance, work, etc.
     

  3. That you would come to understand who you are on a deep level. We like to say we help you find your "True Identity."

“Alpha Academy was pivotal for me at a time when I was lost and had no direction. With the help of Alpha Academy, my life has truly changed for the better.”
